A treasured and timeless favorite, Meredith Willson’s “The Music Man” will march onto the stage at Bellingham High School for six rousing performances that will prove a delight for the whole family. This beloved Tony Award winner is the tale of “Professor” Harold Hill, a traveling salesman who, with his sidekick Marcellus Washburn, cons the residents of a 1915 Iowa town by masquerading as a bandleader. Hill persuades the townsfolk to pay him to create a boys’ marching band, including uniforms, instruments and instruction, though he actually has no musical ability and plans to skip town with the cash. His plan is foiled when romance blooms unexpectedly between the lovable swindler and the local librarian, Marian Paroo. A large cast of exceptionally talented students features a few in shared lead roles, giving rise to alternating casts (“Red Cast” on March 6, 8, 14, “White Cast” on March 7, 13, 15). The Music Man runs Friday and Saturday, March 6th, 7th, 13th, & 14th at 7 pm. Sunday, March 8 & 15 at 2 pm.
Tickets are general seating, $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors, and will be on sale at the BHS ASB office, Village Books in Fairhaven, and at the door. Advance purchase is recommended for this popular event.
